Champion recently contacted us to see if we wanted to partner for a series of sponsored posts about their new shaping line. After reading through the description, it took me all of .2 seconds to agree that YES. YES I would like to demo a perfectly cute pair yoga pants that contain special panels to "streamline your hips, thighs, and tummy."
In addition to yoga style pants, Champion's shaper line also has a capri running tight and a tank – both with the built-in shaping panels.
So. How well do the shaping panels work? Let's take a look, shall we? And because I know you never tire of gazing at my post-partum pooch….
Wow. I just realized that the "before" shot looks a liiiitle too much like my belly shots in the maternity jean article we published a few days ago. Horrifying.
In any case, YAY for shaper pants, right? And a double YAY for shaper pants + shaper tank!
In terms of comfort, I actually dug the way the pants and tank held me in. The pants especially would feel amazing after a c-section. And the fabric is nice and smooth – nothing itchy, thank goodness. These pants retail for about $50.
You're still thinking about those bum panels, aren'tcha?
In other news, I've started running again. Very slowly. For short periods of time. And my bum is thanking me. Or maybe that's just the pants. In any case, not bad, right?
And for those MI mamas who are trying to figure out where these pics were taken…here's a hint:
ps. While this is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. And never fear – we are pretty picky about which sponsored posts we agree to take on, and would never blog about a product we didn't believe in.
